Open Learning Spaces Professional Learning Group: The great leap forward

Exciting news for the Open Learning Spaces PLG group this term as we take the dialogue into the secondary school context.

The next get together will be on Thursday September 6th at Albany Senior High School

We'll kick of the workshop at 4.30pm but if you're keen for a look around (highly recommended), then make sure you're there about 4. 

What's it all about?
The PLG started last year as a place for teachers to talk to teachers about learning, teaching and collaboration in modern learning environments. With many schools investigating open learning spaces, what are the opportunities and challenges that they present? What can we learn from each other about as we seek to maximise the benefits of these new spaces? The PLG provides a great opportunity to talk with other teachers and leaders who are either already in open learning spaces, are about to embark on new buildings or conversions, or simply those who share an interest. The group has grown from 10 to 45 over the year with teachers from about 15 different schools participating. 

What can you expect?
The meetings are a combination of short presentations, workshops and dialogue. There's always afternoon tea and a good opportunity to network with other teachers. They usually last about 90 minutes.

How do I get involved?
The website is now up and running with details of registration and previous meetings. It's free to come along and if you register it helps with the catering.

If you know anyone who may also be interested in getting involved in the group, please pass the details on. All are welcome.
If you have any questions. feedback or suggestions for the PLG, these are welcomed too - just email

Look forward to seeing you there.
